The Best Summer Swim Sales

It’s here! The best end of summer swimsuit sales post! August is always the best month to buy swimsuits on amazing sale. Since I was a little girl, my mom always taught me the value of shopping on a budget. That meant we only shopped sales, no matter what. Swimsuits were no different.

Back to school shopping always meant finding swimsuits on super sale! “Mom, can I buy this Jansport backpack, HCO mini skirt and and a bikini?! Sounds like what a true born and raised Florida kid would say. This season, gingham prints were one of my faves to see on swimsuits! I found a few at great price points too! Besides gingham, keep reading to see my favorite summer swimsuits sales in solid, striped, sustainable and patterned styles!

Aerie Swimsuit (similar Amazon gingham bikini)

This Aerie swimsuit is one of my favorites for summer! My sister Michelle was nice enough to let me borrow it for a beach day! Sadly it’s sold out because Aerie is just amazing but I found so many cute similar options!

First of all, I have a very athletic body and like wearing swimsuits with feminine details like the ruffle on this suit. I’m proud of the body I work hard for but I do find that the more basic or simple my swimsuit is, I start to long for those girly details. Especially in my non-existent chest area. 😂 I like feeling girly and cute! So I tend to lean towards ruffles or some kind of girly detail.

While I totally love Amazon and think this gingham swimsuit is adorable and crazy cheap for only $10, I cannot vouch for quality. It looks super similar to the one I am wearing and has cute ruffle details.

Most bloggers I follow who do Amazon try on’s say it’s either hit or miss with specific items. I absolutely cannot wait until the day I fashion blog full time and can afford to test out all these cute items for you all!

If you are not sure with the whole “Amazon hit or miss” thing, Target makes an adorable high-waisted gingham bikini (top + bottom). I own tons of swimsuits from Target and all my swimsuits hold up for years! Their quality is impeccable for the price!

P.S. I don’t actually wear big statement earrings to the beach. That would be so silly because I love playing in the water and swimming and getting all sandy. I’d rip those babies out ha! After I shot my t-shirt dress look, I totally forgot to take out the earrings in a mad dash to finish these shots before my mom and I melted away.
